    The Vikings - A Brief History in County Down

    The Vikings first came to Ireland as raiders but began to settle here by the ninth century. In the south of the country they founded the towns of Dublin, Waterford, Wexford, Cork and Limerick.

    Archaeologists have found evidence for these southern towns, but no traces of settlements, and relatively few Viking objects, in the north of Ireland. However, the name ‘Strangford’ is a Viking word, referring to the strong currents in the Narrows of the Lough.

    The Aroma of Autumn is in the Air

    There’s something very special in the air in Visit Mourne now that the summer sun is ebbing away. You can feel the crisp autumn breeze, curl up at the crackling log fire and watch the bristling leaves, floating delicately towards the ground.  All this inspires us to immerse ourselves in the great outdoors and wide open spaces.
